Want the fastest Blu-ray burner currently in the market? Then the BDR-208EBK is the perfect drive for you.

The BDR-208EBK is an internal SATA drive. It can burn up to 15x on BD-R media and up to 14x on BD-R dual layer media, which is the fastest in the market! The drive is also backwards compatible, so it can read and write to most DVD and CD formats. See the "Specifications" table below to see all supported media formats, as well as the read and write speeds achievable.


  1. Up to 15x writing speed on BD-R media
  2. Write up to 50Gbytes on one BD-R DL disc
  3. QuickPlay - Movies are ready faster
  4. Backwards compatible with DVD and CD media
  5. Supplied with Blu-ray software

Want to watch Blu-ray 3D titles? Well the BDR-208EBK drive is 3D capable. All you need is 3D playback software and a 3D display system and you're ready to go. Running out of hard drive space? Afraid of losing your valuable files when you're hard drive crashes? With Blu-ray BD-R dual layer (DL) discs, you can store the equivalent of 10 single layer DVDs. Now you can have a backup you can trust and with as few discs as possible.

The BDR-208EBK drive has features such as a QuickPlay which enables movies discs to be ready faster, a Noise Suppression design to minimise noise, an Anti-Dust design to increase durability, and Precision Writing Technology to minimise write errors. And of course being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-208EBK drive supports a wide range of blank media.

Store more data

Up to 156% more data storage capacity than a 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc. The BDXL format supports BDXL Blu-ray media (including 128GB Quad Layer (QL) and 100GB Triple Layer (TL) Blu-ray Disc).

Watch 3D movies

The BDR-208EBK is 3D compatible and comes bundled with ArcSoft TotalMedia Extreme 2 3D playback software. All you need for your 3D experience is a 3D display.

Faster burning

Up to 15x3 writing on BD-R single-layer discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs, and 8x writing on BD-R triple-layer discs.

Smooth movie playback

Scratches, fingerprints and other abnormalities on the surface of a disc can sometimes cause Blu-ray and DVD movie playback to stop. When a PowerRead enabled drive is not able to read through obstructed areas of a disc, it will attempt to move forward quickly to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback.

A better music experience

Scratches and fingerprints on your CDs can cause them to skip. A drive normally makes a calculated guess at the unreadable data and attempts to correct this to match the original music. However this is not 100% accurate. PureRead, when enabled, makes the drive reread the obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible.
